Declan –  eight days a week – parents make sure that Declan practices the middle section (letter “B”) and then go on to memorize the names of the lines and spaces of the bass clef. Declan should write the names of the notes neatly under the notes on the staff ( see homework).

Simon –  parents have Simon practice page 7 of the Suzuki book. Have Simon practice the exercise slowly, making sure that each note and it’s corresponding rhythm are correct. Timing and rhythm are an area where Simon needs help, so help Simon appreciate the exercise as a piece of music.

Josh –  parents have Josh practice Where Did you Sleep Last Night? As well as Ain’t No Grave after having destined the guitar. Josh, remember the fingerpicking patterns for all chords and change them on time.
